Motivational Quote: "I studied the lives of great men and famous women, and I found that the men and women who got to the top were those who did the jobs they had in hand, with everything they had of energy, and enthusiasm and hard work."-Harry S. Truman

Thought #1: And those people didn't even need a middle name--just a letter!

Thought #2: Ecclesiastes 9:10 anyone?

Thought #3: If you are faithful with what you have, more will be added...

Proverbs 26:13(NLT) ->And I have a ferocious cat in the kitchen! But I still have to cook and clean.

Proverbs 26:16(NLT) ->There's a difference in laziness and wisdom to avoid unnecessary work.

Proverbs 26:20(NLT) ->Drop it. Move on with life.

Revelation 5:6 ->Christ has the fullness of the Spirit and the power

1 Samuel 13:14 ->Saul still has the opportunity to repent.

1 Timothy 4:14 ->The ones who go before have both the right and responsibility to strengthen the ones behind them. Including observing their gifts, and pushing the use of them (don't let the young men in your church that you think would make great pastors off the hook! insist they pray and seek God about it!)

Question from 1 Timothy 4:14 ->Should retiring pastors select their own successors? Possibly several years early, to prepare them?

1 Timothy 4:14 ->We should all be striving to strengthen someone.

Prayer: Lord God, help us see You in worship today. Guide our hearts, our tongues, that we may follow You.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
